Accommodation at Chimps’ Nest
Chimps’ Nest is situated at one of the best viewing points of Kibale Forest, right on the border of the National Park. If weather permits you can see the Congolese border formed by the Rwenzori Mountains with its snow-capped peaks. This is truly a stunning sight.
All cottages and budget rooms are self-contained with flush toilets and hot showers, mosquito nets (although there aren’t many mosquito’s here because of the coldness) and have solar powered lighting throughout the day and night.
Staying at Chimps’ Nest means you are staying amidst the flora and fauna of the forest. You will be able to enjoy its beauty and sounds to the fullest!
We offer three types of accommodation:
Our cottages are situated on a hill, with a private and splendid view of Kibale Forest and the Rwenzori Mountains. From your private balcony you can enjoy the wildlife, with the surrounding sounds of birds, monkeys, chimps, and elephants.
The bathroom is outside. It is completely closed off but has an open roof. Your privacy is guaranteed so you can have the ultimate experience of freedom in the middle of nature.
It’s a one to five minutes’ walk from the restaurant to the cottages depending which cottage you stay in. We have 7 standard cottages in total.
If you have any preference (near restaurant/ near forest edge/ best views) please let us know in advance so we can try to meet your wishes and make your stay even more enjoyable.
The walking trails to the cottages are lit but our guides are happy to accompany you to your room for safety. Sometimes elephants and other wild animals roam around the cottages at night.
On request we offer room service for free. This way you can enjoy the sounds of the forest from your balcony to the fullest! We can provide you with a radio so you can order from your room.
The family cottage is built near the restaurant, on a hill. This place is ideal for people with children or for people who want to be nearer to the main building.
Just like all the other cottages this cottage has a lot of privacy and is in the bush, surrounded by various colorful birds and wildlife.
The cottage holds two bedrooms with long (7 ft) flexible beds which can be either twins or doubles. There is space for one extra bed in each bedroom. There is a lockable door in between the two rooms.
This cottage also has a large balcony in the front with a view on the forest and the Rwenzori Mountains and two complete bathrooms with hot showers and flushing toilets.
Our budget rooms are near the restaurant and parking. There are a lot of fruits growing around the building that holds 6 rooms. Therefor monkeys visit this particular spot regularly.
The rooms are simple but sufficient. Each room has a bed big enough (4 by 6 ft) for a couple. Two rooms share one bathroom with flush toilet, washbasin and hot shower. Light is powered by solar 24-hours.
Uganda is a very safe country to travel in. The roads are generally tarmac and in good shape; the people are friendly, welcoming and helpful. East-African residents enjoy a discount.
